Blank Display - Bulb replacment
Just wanted to give Kudo's to www.Corvetteradios.com
and the kits they offer for GM radios. Seems like a lot of the GM radios have problems with the Radio/CD working fine and other lights are lite except the Display lights. We just bought an '05 Grand Prix with this exact issue and youtube has a few vids on the issue and is how I found these guys.
I ordered the 3 bulb kit ($23 shipped) from them on Thursday and it arrived Monday night. Took the radio apart and YES, all 3 bulbs were burned out. Was able to solder in the replacements last night and the display works great....don't have to guess at the tune anymore.
It looks like on their site that they carry a bunch of kits for other GM Radios and just wanted to share in case someone has a radio with some sort of lighting issue. If so, they may be able to help with some replacement parts. As the one video shows, be careful of just using bulbs from Radio shack as they may not last.
'95 Caprice SS conversion - Bonny Buckets - 96 Column, Shifter and Console - 3.73 Gear and Herter tune - Z/28 Cluster - Blazer OH Console - Green/Pink bushings - Chromed Impala Wheels - Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks - Corvette Engine Dress - the list goes on and still more to do...it never ends.
